Jane Mullings: My husband and I happened to be coming up Rupert-Street on that Sunday. We saw a man [Charles Cullam] playing and dancing, and singing to a child [Rose Cullam], I saw it fall out at the window.

 

 Q. Was you looking up at the instant it fell from his arms?

 

J. Mullings. No, but I saw the child coming down, and the blanket in the man's arms.

 

Acquitted. Accidental death.
